New! Financial Assistance for Patients Impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic: During these uncertain times, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is here for you. We recognize the unique concerns of blood cancer patients and their families during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are amplifying our efforts to provide you with information and support.
As part of these efforts, we have established the LLS COVID-19 Patient Financial Aid Program to help eligible blood cancer patients experiencing financial hardship due to the pandemic. If you have already received assistance from any other LLS Patient Financial Assistance Program, you CAN APPLY for assistance from the LLS COVID-19 Patient Financial Aid Program. Patients DO NOT need to have a COVID-19 diagnosis to qualify.
Note about ongoing service for all financial assistance programs: The current situation has affected the program wait times in all areas, including wait times on the phones, claims and application processing. The portals are always open, and you can continue to use your virtual pharmacy card without a delay.
We are diligently working to assist patients as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.
